Senator Aisha Dahiru Ahmed (Binani), the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the recent governorship election in Adamawa State, has dropped her suit against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Binani filed a lawsuit seeking judicial review of the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) decision to reverse her earlier announcement as the winner of the election by the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Hudu Yunusa-Ari.
Justice Ekwo reminded Sheriff that on the last adjourned date, an order was issued directing him to address the court on whether the court had jurisdiction to hear the case.
The lawyer, who informed the court that many issues had arisen between the last adjournment date and today, pleaded for an order dismissing the suit.
The judge, however, held that since Sheriff had failed to go by the order of the court, the appropriate thing to do was to dismiss the matter.
“I hereby make an order dismissing this suit,” Justice Ekwo declared.
